Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Opening Night Roll Call Pt. 1

Thursday's best opening-night performances on the prep football field
Terrence Cherry (Troy) – WELCOME TO THE OC 'TC'…….Cherry, a transfer from Indiana, made a SIZZLING Metro Detroit debut for the Colts, running for 133 yards and three TDS in a resounding 24-20 win over Romeo
Timmy List (Birmingham Seaholm) – This little fireplug of a backfield threat, rang up the Ferndale defense for a career-high 140 yards on the ground in the Maples 9-0 win
Taylor Timko (Pontiac NDP) – WHAT CAN'T THIS GIRL DO?.......The Fighting Irish girls soccer superstar (already committed to Michigan as only a junior) made her Fighting Irish football debut on Thursday in smashing fashion, booting a game-winning 35-yard field goal in the final moments of NDP 17-14 downing of Almont on the road
Alex Moore (Waterford Mott) – Busted out for 185 yards and 4 touchdowns in the Corsairs 34-14 spanking of Wayne Memorial, getting the TEAM FAHR regime started with a BANG. Could Moore be the breakout early-season star in the KLAA? Burney says……GOOD CHANCE
Tyler Wiegers (Birmingham DCD) – Showed why he's one of the best field generals in the entire state throwing for 315 yards and 3 touchdowns – Including an 88-yard bomb in the second half –  in the 'Jackets' 41-0 stomping of Detroit Mumford.
Richie Wilson (Birmingham DCD) – Displayed DECIMATING versatility for TEAM MAC, scoring three first-half touchdowns in three separate ways – he ran one in, he caught one from Wiegers and then made an interception and took it to the house.
Chauncey Bridges (North Farmington) – Chauncey Billups was 'Mr. Big Shot', so I'm going to nickname my main man CB, 'Mr. Big Play,' because that's all this kid produces on the gridiron… the Raiders' 24-13 victory over Bay City John Glenn, Bridges rushed for 175 yards and two touchdowns, as well as taking a punt return back for a score, as well.
Zach Goor (Walled Lake Central) – The Vikings' sophomore sensations ran for 154 yards and two touchdowns on a workmanlike 28 carries in Central's 28-14 besting of Saginaw Heritage.
